6.5m X 2.5m CNC plasma cutting table
This is really great.. i see you are machining many of your parts. you can also try Hepco Motion for your runners and rails..
man, i would be intererested in your findings and learnings.
what size plasma cutter are you planning to run?
also, what sort of software do you think is best on that sort of setup..
i am also building a machine of those similar dimentions, I am currently developing something extremely simple to run the machine.
Developing my own sort of Gcode
Developing my own machine controller (c-gcode interpereter)
Developing my own drawing tool (based on openoffice- impress)
then i want to integrate all these utilities into one app and forget about all these other troublesome programs..
This is only in the development phases, planning to do some intense work on it in the dec holidays.. so far i have almost nothing.
thanks for the photo's
You might want to take a look at the wheels on your car. As long as you are re-inventing stuff
A little over-zelous maybe..
i am sure i will end up using the off the shelf apps, but its fun trying to make yr own.. (there is so much source code out there)
